Who wins between Cub Swanson and Kron Gracie?
Frank Hyden MMATorch Columnist
I think Gracie wins by submission. I’ve liked Swanson for a long time but I think Gracie will be too much for him at this stage. Gracie has been making short work of people, though I do think Swanson gets to the second round, I think he succumbs to the same fate everyone else has so far and gets submitted.

I like Cub Swanson but his best days appear to be behind him. He reportedly had trouble finding jiu jitsu gyms willing to train him for this fight, which isn’t going to help him against undefeated Kron Gracie. I like Gracie by submission in the second round here.

Cub Swanson is going to do what the Brewers and Oakland A’s did in the MLB playoffs the last two years: nothing! No reason to bet on Cub Swanson, even if he wins, then where does he go. Cub constantly starts and stops his momentum. Kron Gracie has a name to live up to so he better not take a step back with a loss to a jobber like Cub. Kron should respect Cub enough to take him out early.
